How to Avoid Overspending with Gacha in Genshin

AKA gacha-ing responsibly within your means.
With the Zhongli banner coming up, I'm making this post to warn and help people from itchy fingers and the urge to 'get just... 1 more constellation!!'. For context, I've played FGO, Arknights, SinoAlice, FEH, and Onmyoji, and am fully F2P with other games, and I've seen how far itchy fingers can go - with this game, people are being introduced to the gacha mechanic for the first time and may find it difficult to 'just stop', especially with the constellations. Here are some tips to avoid over-spending and I'll use Zhongli as an example of a limited character you wanna get.

  1. Define your goal clearly and budget how much is needed with the worst-case scenario
Worse-case scenario is you don't get Zhongli within the soft pity for accumulated limited banner pulls. At 90, it's a 50-50 chance at the banner character. So let's say you 'die-die' want Zhongli, meaning you're pulling until you get him which, if you're unlucky, is at 180 pulls. Budget for 180 pulls.
With normal purchases, that's USD100 for 50.5 pulls with the most expensive and most 'worth it' crystals per dollar. If you're buying just enough crystals for 180 pulls, you need 3 x the USD100 pack, then 1 x USD50 pack and 2 x USD5 pack and 1 x USD1 pack for a total of USD361 = 28840 crystals = 180.25 pulls.
If you anticipate future whaling, then 4 x USD100 packs will cost you USD400 = 32320 crystals = 202 pulls.
So if you want constellation 1 Zhongli, you need 2 x the above as an absolute minimum. Due to the exchange rates, it's gonna be more expensive in other regions.
  1. Buy before you gacha
Impulse purchases don't add up until you look at your card history and realise 'Oh shit'. After budgeting and before the banner releases, buy the exact no. of genesis crystals you want to gacha on for this banner and no more. That way, when you run out, you should have accomplished your main goal of getting the character + the constellations you want. Seeing there's not enough to gacha more with and having satisfied your goal, this prevents you from spending even more especially since you need to go through an additional step to purchase more crystals first. If you still get itchy fingers afterwards -
  1. You don't need higher constellations
Sure, it's nice, but do you really need a constellation 6 Zhongli? If you're financially secure and have money to spare, whatever, but if you also want Xiao or Ganyu, consider that with shitty luck, you'll need to reserve a minimum of USD361 for each of them and their constellations as well.
I suggest you use a financial planning calendar at tentatively 1 new 5* being released every month to save up accordingly.
  1. Read people's personal stories/Call your gambling addiction hotline
After achieving your goal and hitting pity, it's just gambling. Unless you have enough to guarantee another Zhongli, you're just betting on rng. If you don't have enough for 180 pulls, I would argue it's also gambling cuz it's still not guaranteed at 90 pulls - it's still a 50/50 for your husbando.
If you still wanna go, read some people's stories about gacha in Genshin first then carefully consider - this will help save you money as you evaluate if it's really 'worth it'.
Example: https://www.reddit.com/Genshin_Impact/comments/jp2cmk/i_amwas_addicted_to_spending_money/
If you still have that urge, call your gambling addiction hotline - it's not just for people addicted to casino gambling. There's no shame in admitting you need help in stopping, and they'll provide you with the advice to do so.
And remember -
  1. Gacha is predatory, but we can avoid falling prey to it.
If you wanna gacha even without having enough for 180 pulls, you can still go for it. But do not become desperate and splurge to get just 1 character - financial planning is a must with a gacha game. Plus, chin-up - there's always a re-run of the banner; limited characters are only limited in that they have a tiny chance to appear on specific dates. Just save your primogems accordingly.

Have fun, and all the best for your wishes!
EDIT: Just to clarify, I'm not F2P in Genshin plus the aforementioned games, in case there's any confusion, but I *have* been F2P in other games aside from the mentioned ones.

SUGGESTION: Replace the duel arena with an actual sand casino including slots, blackjack and roulette. Add a bingo too while you're at it. At least then we don't have to fake the duel arena being a place for gambling addicts.

Girlfriend is addicted to playing on online casinos and refuses to see a problem

Well to start of with with some context, me and this girl have been together for about 4 months or so. Shes been playing casino for long before then. She has lost huge amounts of money on it (in the 1000s) and she is in debt partly cause of it. Most months she burns all her money in the first week.
I tell her that it’s something i dislike, that i want her to stop it and that it’s a waste of money. Everytime I try to bring it up she always get VERY defensive and starts talking about that it’s her money, which I can’t argue with obviously. Or other times she for some reason brings up my weed smoking. I smoke for maybe 50euros per month, often less and it doesn’t put any stress my personal economy.
I also try telling her that if we’re gonna have some sort of future together she needs to stop otherwise I won’t be able to trust her finacially and she comes back with the same ”I would never use your money on it” (note she often borrows money from people to spend on casino)
I need help on how to tackle the situation and make her understand that I can’t deal with it in long term.
Edit: she is also unemployed

We should be truly sad about what is happening around Artifact, and not for the most popular reasons

Maybe I'm just getting old, IDK..
I don't like the generalized F2P model that has been growing in videogames ultimately : Fortnite, Hearthstone, LoL... While these game don't feature cheap gameplay at all, they focus on methods that create hard addiction and commitment to one particular game :
The point being that Artifact, while having to deal with those aspects to survive in the middle of digital TCG games today, tried to develop a healthier model and to build the game around a marketplace that reconciled people. You can spend the same (less) amount of money as you do in the other games and have access to a full collection to play constructed for people who want to play constructed. And the people who don't can just go infinite drafting while selling their expensive cards and slowly building a full collection too, except for those expensive rare cards, and when the time comes they can buy them if they really want.
I spent 20$ in the game (buying it) and nothing more, and I feel at the same power level as others, whereas in Hearthstone for instance I don't (I could play arena but it is repetitive and isn't based on skill). And nothing seems to encourage me in spending more money for the moment.
The problem is that part of what is being criticized about the game at the moment is that : - fewer and fewer popular streamers are interested in broadcasting it because the audience is small - the game doesn't give shiny, easy and constant rewards. And people don't feel pushed at playing it
It means that even though artifact brought superior gameplay and a lot of nice cool features (tournament mode, deck tracker...), a lot of people stay focused on the game not being addictive enough. For those people addictive elements became more important than gameplay. And that is why we should be truly sad.
I can't say how many people are concerned, but when we see how successful games like Fortnite, LoL and Hearthstone are, they are a lot, and they mean a lot in the videogames economy.
Everything I said is not new, it is well-known, but Artifact is one more example that underlines the global mind shifting towards predatory game models.
I think the game tried to be less of a dopamine dispenser than others and more like a game focused on hardcore gameplay for smart people (people like being called smart too, it's an incentive). But some people keep asking : why I don't have my quests with daily wins? why is there a paywall while everything has to be free (while it's not of course, for many people)?...
Those people are literally demanding addiction. Addiction won. The media died.
I'm sad.
Speaking of the future of Artifact now? Maybe they will let time flow and let those people leave the surrounding of the game. Maybe they will totally adopt the F2P model and introduce all those methods I dislike, and they will spend time, money and effort on them while they could have done many other better things. I don't know. We'll see.
(I'm not talking here about balancing issues, only about those popular addictive methods)
edit : I have put a good blog post about some "addictive methods" in the comments and reggyreggo suggested me to post it here. I'm sorry it's in French, but you can still google translate it if needed and if you are interested in it. http://www.merlanfrit.net/Les-dessous-de-l-addiction (about Hearthstone)

From Gambling Addiction to Clear Mind Resurrection - 2020

Greetings to everyone here,
I was scrolling trough youtube and stumbled upon an old episode from Joe Rogan's podcast where Joey Diaz discussed his thoughts gambling addiction and it brought back memories which somehow I managed to keep away from my mind for over a year now.
So whats the story you might ask ?
The story starts as all fun and games as for everyone else out there, before entering the devil's side of gambling world. Now I'am 28 years old but it started when i was 19 years old. With a group of friends from Prague i got invited to a typically student house party and at some point group of guy's suggested to hit the casino that was opposite side of the street. I myself at that point have never been into the gambling world, other than some poker hands with the boys. In fact, i found table games such as roulette, poker and black jack relatively boring. Moving forward, in my first visit it seemed all very exciting the lights, the music and of course the smell of tobacco factory, which by the way led me being a social smoker as well, but thats another story. So the first time i played casino i remember taking out couple of euros and joining my friends for our special casino night. In that following year i had no signs of being addicted to casino, because i only went to casino with my friends and on very rare occasions. Since we where only hanging out at tables, which i quit didn't enjoy, I ended up putting my money into the slots... NOW STOP HERE !! I'm not here to tell the long version of win and loose story .I did gamble away 4 years of my life on the slot machines and if i would put in all that time spent in casino to reading books I might be in competition with Bill Gates on most books read.
The story continued something along these lines, I gambled every single EURO I had and ended up pretty bad owing large amounts of money to friends and business partners. And now I'm working my next 5 years to paying that money back instead of buying real estate or traveling the world. 4 years of playing slots got me as slave for my next 5 years paying money back to those i owe. If only I knew at that moment when i realised i have gambling problem that it if will not react on the problem now it will cost my next 5 years of my life thinking about one thing - paying back to those i owe, i would never ever step my leg there. But thats why we are here, because we didn't knew and we didn't evaluate the consequences of gambling addiction.
So what steps i took for my clear mind resurrection ?
Cheers to all you guys this is my first reddit post and stay safe in these Corona times.I hope now due to limited access to gambling you are ready to open the next chapter of your life and trust me I have never ever felt better than having a plan what i will do after i pay the debt and that is my only focus.
The road to success is not going to be easy, but neither it is rocket science, but still fly into the space, don't we ? :)
Best Regards,
Mind Resurrection

I swear to god I would be a lot happier if I could give a cut to the vault door guard (the one with laxative addiction) after the casino heist.

I mean, the poor guy keeps getting punched in the face and drugged, I hate to think he probably also lost the job afterwards. If only he got something out of it.

Use techniques from the casino/gaming industry in education to get kids addicted to learning.

These techniques are proven to work, why not exploit them for something good every once in awhile? Reorient the education system to work in sync with dopamine systems instead of having them memorize textbooks.

Used to be addicted to gambling. So I went to a casino last weekend.

I haven’t really done anything for the last couple of weekends. So, I had this brilliant idea of withdrawing $60 and playing roulette.
It was my first time on this casino and I asked this gentleman for the direction to the game area. He just stared at me for 5 secs then proceeded to withdraw cash from the atm without saying a word to me.
I didn’t think anything of it until I got to the game area and aura of the place was just depressing. I wanted to get the hell out immediately. I could tell that some people were there for a while now.
I thought to myself I went there to play roulette might as well gamble the $60 I brought with me. I placed red 4 times and I lost all it without winning a single bet.
Needless to say, I’m glad I lost all of my $60 it made me realize that I was wasting a good chuck of my income on gambling back then.
